How I got started
« on: April 10, 2009, 11:45:05 AM »
I was divorced, went on various dates blah, blah, blah, was fixed up
blah, blah, blah, I dated a few of the girls that I shouldn't have, I
went to a few old stompin grounds blah, blah, blah.

I met some on the internet, blah, blah, blah. I think to describe my
dating at the time (with a few exceptions) would be like describing cream
of wheat with no sugar. You can eat it, but it's a little bland.

One day, I was sitting at home not bothering anyone cruising the internet
and came across a website with gorgeous women who would just love to
meet men twice their age. I googled this and googled that and then I
came across a long forgotten forum (the old a long forgotten forum website).

I became a Lurker. I read EVERYTHING, I researched everything, I bought every
book that was for sale, I went to every site. I was kinda lucky and found the
forums BEFORE I wrote my first  letter, before I sent $300 per month to a sexy photo. 
I lurked and read for days and days before I ever made my first post.

I learned that RW didn't necessarily like men twice there age. I learned that if
it looks too good to be true it probably was, I learned a lot.

I kept reading these trip reports about how a guy went to the FSU and ended in
despair and the next trip report where the guy found his perfect lady. I read all the
archives (it took forever). I read a zillion threads. I said to myself, hell I can do this !!
If all these other guys can do this and find happiness so could I !!!

I didn't have any digital photos of myself so I called up a couple of photographers
and found out that yes they would take pictures of  me but they wouldn't give
me a disk. They are scammers of the worst kind.

I finally found some kid photographer who looked too young to be the paper boy,
and he tried the same crap as the others at first but I said I didn't want any photos
(I have a mirror if I want to see myself) and that I wanted to attract hot women on
the internet, and I wanted / needed digital photos to do it and isn't he glad that I
wasn't looking to join one of those SEXFINDER sites?

He assured me that he was happy that I didn't want naked photos of myself sporting
 wood and he agreed to take some photos let me pick the ones I like the best and then
he put them on a CD for me.

I made a list of all the good things about me that would surely make me irresistible to
RW and I was looking at a fairly short list   :chuckle: :laugh:

Then I thought that living where I live would have some advantages, the weather
is great, I am near the Ocean, it never snows but I can go to the world class snow
skiing after a 4 hour drive. I wrote down all the different kinds of tourist spots, the
various restaurants, I did a little research and found out there is quite a bit of a 
Russian community here and several nice restaurants. I wrote maybe 10 typed pages
of stuff over a weekend about me, where I lived...................... It was a jumbled mess.

Then I made a list of everything I wanted in a woman and I included everything that I
didn't want. I was brainstorming (my brain usually has weather problems  ;D )
So I had at least a hundred things that I wanted or just as importantly that I didn't
want.

I looked at my various lists and decided that it looked like Sybil had psycho analyzed me.
So I started putting the accumulated mess into some kind of order. There were some
things on the list that I could live with and some things on the list that I couldn't live without.

From these thing I pieced together a profile, and I improved it with new ideas etc as
I thought of them.

I was like you Bill. I read everthing on a long forgotten forum forever before I even thought about posting. Too bad that doesn't seem to be the norm anymore....Good stuff, Bill.

I was laughing at myself as I read Bill's words, seems I did everything in the reverse order, made ALL the mistakes and got one heck of an education, then found "the other forum" and got a proper education. 

Bill wrote: "One day, I was sitting at home not bothering anyone cruising the internet..."  Sure Bill, cruising the internet for porn is my guess.   :ROFL:

I suspect that it is still a longer list than mine. :laugh: Maybe I should get friends to help me list my pros and cons.

I am trying to do that very thing now on this forum. Problem is I have trouble retaining the information (long story short - had bacterial menengitis and it affected my memory). I think I will start printing some of these and re-reading.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly use up, totally worn out & loudly proclaiming  "WOW - What a Ride"!
